Yo Captain Gonzo - I found your hero.
Hey Cap and all you aviation afficianados take a gander at this one.
Try not to be eating or drinking while watching it. You might just make a mess - especially towards the end.
And Captain Gonzo, you might want to try this during your next lesson with the flight instructor next to you.

That's insane... in a really cool kind of way!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

Pretty slick, but wind shear would not be this guys friend.

Since the topic is doing things with airplanes that wasn't in the original design, here's a clip of Tex Johnson selling the new Boeing 707 by doing a spur-of-the-moment roll of the prototype at an airshow.

I saw the 707 roll video before, and that takes balls!
Not only to do it in the first place, but be the first guy to do it, and risk the entire companies future on pulling it off.
Hat's off to him.Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!
